Your One and Only Life

Among the composers and arrangers represented on this recording, only Franz Schubert cannot claim Canadian citizenship.  We open with a song by Susan Crowe that asks us what choices we will  make with our life, and many of the works embrace that theme in their own ways. Heart Songs of the White Wampum is a masterful work by Timothy Corlis, based on the poems of E. Pauline Johnson premiered with Beverley Johnson in 2015. Each work on this album is a gem!
